"Silky Smooth on a Razor's Edge"
Dark-roast coffee, cacao, mild spicy chives, fresh alpine grass, wildflowers, slight stone-fruit sweetness; mild occasional notes of fresh hay, barnyard, toast, anise/licorice, musty dry-attic air. Highs: beautiful wrapper; classy, superb shape and construction; perfect draw; consistent, rewarding, complex flavor profile. Lows: insufficient care yields unbalanced heat/bitterness; lacks body and intensity in home-stretch. Complimentary pairings: cognac, non-port/sherry dessert and white wines, black or herbal/rooibos tea, bright/acidic light-to-medium roast coffee. Contrasting pairings: Highland single-malts, rum, hazelnut liqueur splash in vodka, dark-roasted coffee. Conclusion: smooth, delicate, multifaceted flavor rewards the patient and attentive but quickly penalizes a nervous and distracted smoker with surging one-dimensional bitterness. Some may wish for a slightly fuller-bodied cigar.

For those who like a milder cigar, you can't do better. This is a beautiful cigar to look at, draws and burns perfectly and has loads of complex flavor right down to the nub. The CT wrappers are a bit delicate, but I think that is the price you pay for this kind of flavor.

An outstanding cigar with an amazing easy draw, nice full ash and a great burn. Not a strong cigar but still has a great nutty flavor with a silk creamy smooth smoke. The only thing I can complain is the same as previous reviews, the wrapper unravel about 3/4 through. I was able to smoke it down to the nub but, the wrapper seems to be a bit delicate. I have to say that this is now one of my favorites.

"Huge fan of Perdomo La Tradicion Champagne"
I?d been a huge fan of the Perdomo La Tradicion Champagne line for years, my favorite being the Perdomo 10th Anniversary Champagne Figurado. I do hope after the 10th Anniversary passes they bring back the original Perdomo La Tradicion Champagne line I think it offered better flavor, quality and construction.
